Sopwell House wedding photographer - Mary and James

Sopwell House wedding photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing the lovely wedding between Mary and James last year at Sopwell House in St. Albans. The couple had completed their official wedding ceremony a few days earlier with a few friends and family in attendance so this day was all about being coming together, relaxed and celebrating! James’ father officiated at the beautifully laid out outside ceremony in the walled garden at Sopwell House, with emotional readings and songs special to Mary and James.

As a Sopwell House wedding photographer, I suggested to the couple that we could maybe incorporate St. Albans Cathedral and maybe some of the Roman Ruins on the outskirts of the ancient city in their bride and groom portraits and I was delighted when they were very excited by the idea. So, after the formal group shots (and a short rain shower) were finished, we headed off for some quiet time to get some beautiful romantic portraits. This is the time during the wedding day that many of my couples tell me they almost enjoy the most because it gives them time away on their own for a little while in the middle of what is often a very hectic and nerve-wracking day!

The ruins were fantastic and made a very spectacular an unusual backdrop to Mary and James’ images, with the couple in their finery providing a real elegant contrast with the colours and textures of the ruins.

Mary and James had theirs and friends’ own recipes on the tables for people to take away with them, which was a really nice personal touch. The fantastic covers band for the evening, iPop were excellent. They really threw a lot of energy into the room and had everyone boogying all night!

Assisting and shooting the guys for me was David Owen - thanks Dave! Please enjoy these images from Mary and James’ special day…
